62  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Poll: What is the status of your SheevaPlug's Power Supply? on: January 01, 2011, 07:17:37 AM
"Luckily" bought two SheevaPlugs from Globalscale back in Sep 09, of one was more or less sitting idle at my desk as a spare (if the first would fail).
The "production" plug was sitting in the somhow cool basement running 24/7 as a NAS.
As I made my "development" work switching from Ubuntu to Debian on the spare plug the productive one got replaced the spare plug a few weeks ago as just replaced them during the OS swap to minimize the "downtime".
Thus I noticed that the as by then productive plug starts to show the PSU symptons.
Luckily it still boots, but it takes up to three minutes till it becomes stable: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgCVQIBcmeQ

I thought giving it a try with a TeVii S660 DVB-S2 box [3], but though I think I got HTS TVheadend [1] properly compiled and installed on the plug, it can't find any "TV Adapters".

Is that kernel suitable for this exercise (compared to the settings in [5]) or should I use another one?

I guess it is, though my actual findings are based on Debian Squeeze (Linux Sheeva 2.6.32-5-kirkwood #1 Sat Dec 11 05:09:52 UTC 2010 armv5tel) to which I recently switched:

HTS Tvheadend (SVN-R5780) couldn't find the TeVii S660 DVB-S2 device neither, but I recalled, that as I still had a TerraTec Cingery DVB-T USB-adapter in my drawer (because -T coverage/signal strength is very poor where I live Wink).

However attaching it to the SheevaPlug I can see it, now :-) (thou no channels as to the above issue).

cbxbiker61 et al.,

I saw folks had set up their SheevaPlug with DVB-* USB-device as e.g. streaming servers. [2,3]

I thought giving it a try with a TeVii S660 DVB-S2 box [3], but though I think I got HTS TVheadend [1] properly compiled and installed on the plug, it can't find any "TV card".

Is that kernel suitable for this exercise (compared to the settings in [5]) or should I use another one?

I tried to follow the instructions given in the Readme.txt and here, however I ran into the following error trying to build wxWidgets under Debian Squeeze (2.6.32.5) on my SheevaPlug.

Code:

Any idea what went wrong and how to overcome this? - thx
68  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Debian Squeeze: Mounting USB Drive on reboot fails on: November 28, 2010, 01:56:57 AM
As a delay of 5 worked for me so far (former Ubuntu), I just kept it the same for the Debian boot for now, (though still configured as an option in u-boot, but more or less obsolete, now.)

setenv bootargs_sd 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootdelay=5 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500000(rootfs) rw ip=a.b.c.253:a.b.c.1:a.b.c.1:255.255.255.0:Sheeva:eth0:none'
setenv bootcmd_sd 'setenv bootargs $(bootargs_sd); mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0 0x8000000 /uImage; bootm 0x8000000'
setenv bootcmd 'run bootcmd_mmc; run bootcmd_nand; run bootcmd_sd'


However I had another issue lately, thou I don't know if it's related to the delay value (as far as I can recall I at least never had these kind of issues on the plug running with Ubuntu).

I found the throughput to be very bad lately (log-on/off with the Windows Roaming Profiles was really a pain). I first suspected my network causing these problems, but in the end I found the I/O to the USB-HDD too small and I guess it was just mounted via USB1.1 (when I ran "dmesg | grep usb" I think think I saw a message telling me something like the USB-HDD could do better and I should use an highspeed USB-Hub?).

So I rebooted this morning and the issue seems to be gone for now.

Hi birdman,

On the weekend I amended the bootcmd_mmc u-boot environment variable given her http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html with an "usb start"

setenv bootcmd_mmc 'mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd; usb start'

but it does not mitigate the situation:

But of course your hint was worthwhile a new try (in the meantime I also saw some of your post where you ran into a similar situation :-)

Thus I modified the u-boot variables as follows:

setenv bootargs_console 'console=ttyS0,115200 rootdelay=5'
setenv bootargs_mmc 'mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage'
setenv bootcmd_mmc 'setenv bootargs $(bootargs_console); run bootargs_mmc; bootm 0x00800000 0x01100000'
setenv bootcmd 'run bootcmd_mmc; run bootcmd_nand; run bootcmd_sd'


And indeed, looks better, now :-)

BTW: as my plug's in the basement I always have to pick it up and bring it to my PC to have access to the u-boot environment.
So I though being lazy and considered the use of the sheeva-uboot-tools (https://code.google.com/p/sheeva-uboot-tools/), dl them and compiled my own version.

However, though the sheeva-ubootenv-print worked OK, sheeva-ubootenv-save seem to have screwed the config, as another print claimed about CRC? errors and the plug didn't came after reboot. When I picked it up I could access u-boot, but it just had default settings. Luckily I had a backup at hand and could restore my previous settings, so got it working again (though there was another small intermezzo with the kernel complaining about an unknown Manufacturer ID, but I can't recall exactly how did overcome this ;-)
71  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Debian Squeeze: Mounting USB Drive on reboot fails on: November 21, 2010, 02:39:00 AM
Hi, already had look here http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=1083.0, but as this is too old I dare to open a new thread.

I recently switched from Ubuntu 9.04 to Debian Squeeze with my SheevaPlugs (booting from a 1GB SD).
Attached to the plug is also a 2TB Hitachi USB HDD, which contains my data, e.g. shared via cfis/samba.

Debian's working quite well, however when rebooting the plug, the attached USB drive usually doesn't get mounted. That's new to me as it worked fine using Ubuntu.

This is the entry in /etc/fstab:

#/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 ext3 rw,usrquota 0 0
UUID=<USB's ID> /mnt/sda1 ext3 rw,usrquota 0 0


Mounting it on the CLI "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 works.

Strangly if I power cycle the plug the drive gets mounted.

Any idea what this might be. Haven't tried it yet, but may an "usbstart" during the u-boot initialization improve the situation?

Just migrated my setup from Ubuntu 9.04 to Debian Squeeze during last weekend (planned for longer but it took me while to carry over my samba PDC config as I'm not too familiar with U*X).
So far everything seems to be running smoothly though I still have to tidy my smb.conf (which originally comes from an unslugged NLSU2).
